Default Cocaine Taxi. I don't understand anything

Can somebody write any fragment of the lyrics of this song?

I don't speak English, and all I understand is "Cocaine taxi", "1,2,3" (0:20), "say goodbye" (0:32) and "o yea" (0:55)

Even I, a native English speaker, can't make out many of the words.

^ It's a cool song, heker, but very difficult to make out the words.

Just after he sings, "1,2,3" I can hear what seems to be "Frankenstein" and then "magazine."
I had better luck with his singing after the guitar solo: at 1:23, it goes something like:

Hit them when you're riding high
How you gonna run and hide?
My oh my,
What a way to die!
How you gonna #####?
Take a ride

Take a ride on a
Cocaine taxi

Given that they're singing about a taxi I'd guess that would be "How you gonna pick/take a cab", or something similar?

I makes sense, but I think I hear the "s" in the last word.

It could be a musical stab, which is more of a jazz/blues thing, but the singer John Goodblood does a lot of jazz/blues.

I'm not saying that the word actually "stab". I'm just venting what's on my mind.

Hey! We are all famous in this thread!

If you google "Cocaine Taxi Lyrics," you come up with this link : https://genius.com/discussions/30537...-to-transcribe - which brings us full-circle, and to the realization that John Goodblood may be the only person who understands what he's singing!

I uploaded it to genius.com. I also added a link to this thread.

For some reason, the site choose the avatar of DriveYourCarDownToTheSea

^ That's clever of you heker! Perhaps someone who reads genius.com will be able to help us with the lyrics. If they do, please let us know because it's a puzzle that now has me intrigued.
